Biography

In 2014, Mark was accepted onto British Cycling’s Olympic Academy Programme and at the Cali round of the 2014/15 World Cup series Mark was part of the bronze medal-winning team pursuit squad.

In 2015, Mark won his first senior gold medal on the world stage with victory in the scratch race in the second round of the 2014/15 UCI Track Cycling World Cup in Cambridge, New Zealand. Mark completed an excellent weekend at the Avantidrome with a bronze medal in the Madison, alongside Germain Burton.

2016 saw further bronze medals in the team pursuit at both the under-23 and senior European championships, with silver in the scratch race at the under-23 championships as well.

Stewart then won the second world cup gold medal of his career as part of the British quartet in the team pursuit at the opening round of the 2016/17 UCI Track Cycling World Cup in Glasgow.

Those performances earned Stewart a selection for his first ever world championships at the UCI Track Cycling World Championships in Hong Kong in April 2017, where he was part of the Great Britain Cycling Team lineup that finished fourth in the team pursuit.

Stewart then returned to the UEC Under-23 and Junior Track European Championships in Anadia, becoming a double European under-23 champion, picking up victories in both the individual pursuit and omnium in Portugal.

He ended his 2017 in style, winning two medals at the final round of the Tissot UCI Track Cycling World Cup in Canada, taking silver in the points race before teaming up with Ollie Wood to win Madison bronze.

Named as part of the Great Britain Cycling Team squad for the 2018 UCI Track Cycling World Championships in Apeldoorn, Netherlands, Stewart focused on the Madison and points race in the Netherlands.

Alongside Wood for the Madison, the duo were unfortunate to miss out on a medal, finishing in fourth place, just one point off the podium - but Stewart had better fortune in the points race, winning bronze to claim his first-ever world championships medal.

The following month, Stewart won a sensational gold medal in Australia - claiming the points race title for Scotland at the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast.
